After a whirlwind two-week trip to both Northern and Southern California, we are back in Denver.

We had amazing times with dear friends, some of the best people I know.

There were people we wanted to see, but ran out of time. Hopefully next year.

Christmas is always ten times sweeter when it's your baby's first.

One year ago on December 31st, I lost my baby. This year on December 31st, I got to watch Mary Lu nap in her grandpa's arms. God is gracious in ways I will never understand.

And it's good to be back in Denver. I do feel lonely for our old life in California, but thrilled about our current life in Colorado. I suppose it's a blessing to love where you come from AND where you are now.

I'm hoping to do a bit more blogging going forward. I cherish this way of remaining connected to friends near and far. Right now, though, it's time to hold Mary. Finish making dinner. Put some more laundry away.

It's good to be home.

Glad we had a chance to see you, though too short. I know what you mean about SLO and your new digs. I'm having a hard time making this a real home yet, but am finally getting around better and finding favorite places. And soon my daughter is picking me up for a birthday brunch. Love being close to her. She's helped. Glad you made it back and glad you made it home.
